DCA will be holding its Mid Year Meeting in the most beautiful European city outside Europe! Québec City sits on the Saint Lawrence River in Canada’s mostly French-speaking Québec province. Dating to 1608, it has a fortified colonial core, with stone buildings and narrow streets. The Petit Champlain district’s cobblestone streets are lined with bistros and boutiques.During the Mid Year Meeting, the RDV 2017 Tall Ship Regatta will be sailing into Quebec City on its six-month’s journey. It is one of the largest and most spectacular festivals of its kind. More than 40 Tall Ships will be sailing Canadian waters to honor the 150th anniversary of the Canadian Confederation in 2017. You will have the opportunity to admire the majestic beauty of these cathedrals of the seas and participate in some of the week-long events in the city.
